. ohio governor john kasich said he's in civil unions. one day later the staffer said he didn't mean that. what? he did mean it, he wasn't allowed to say it. in today's gop, if you're not far right, you're wrong. also we learned today that newt gingrich and rick santorum secretly talked about forming a massive ticket. what happened? big surprise. they couldn't agree on who was going to be president and who was going to be vice president. tonight, a great story of political mating and eventually cold feet. >>> plus it's hard for michelle obama, or michele bachmann to top herself and she's done it not once, but twice this week, including that obama care, love this word, is killing people. remember the death squads and death panels. she's back with them again. michele bachmann pants on fire fact check coming later in the show. let me talk about the fringe right to know even a smidgen of history. this is "hardball" the place for politics. omnipotent of opportu. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the ais
'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. remember john f. kennedy's book "profiles in courage"? it's about u.s. senators who had to cast courageous votes that some of the people back home didn't like. such a vote is coming soon to a senator near you. the issue, gun safety. the nra is out there working gun owners loading them up with the worst case scenarios. if someone does a background check on you, count on that person to turn in your name to washington. next step, the creation of the national registry of all guns and name and address of all those who bought them. this means the pressure is now on the senators, alarmed, in a personal sense by those young kids whose lives were wiped away at 6 years old. will they vote what they think is right or buckle to the national rifle association and to second amendment fanatics? tonight we debate the profiles in courage. those u.s. senators for whom the gun safety vote could make all the difference. mark glaze is the director of mayor bloomberg's group, mayor's against illegal guns. and jim johnson is the balmer county polic
the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit
wingers versus the establishment. hardball strategists. mike feldman is a democrat. john feehery is a republican. who should they bet on as the face of the party who should win. you' do you want palin or karl rove out organizing and vetting? >> i'd rather have neither out there. i think karl rove knows how to win elections. he won two with george bush. palin was a successf fuful -- i alaska. she was -- you know, she had a -- >> you're so cold about this. i have never seen -- i mean, i don't agree with anything she says. but that is a political genuine article. she puts a better show -- that's why she died on fox. that booth she was up in wasilla didn't work on the stage. moving around. obviously a very attractive person. moving around on that stage. look how she dominates that stage. what is that if it isn't p politics? >> she's a great show person. very good speech maker. she wasn't a particularly good governor. she quit mid-term. i think that killed her. she really can't articulate in any convincing way a governing philosophy that works in the future. >> let me ask you, michael
and other gay people. but this is an issue where the republican party is going to drag its heels. john boehner feels like it's a good idea to come out and say, i wouldn't support gay marriage even if i had a gay son which is so unbelievable. >> let's get a response to that. i think that's interesting. is it becoming partisan? meaning that you expect the republicans will not change their platform between now and then, next time, for president? >> no. i actually am optimistic they will, chris. in fact, the postmortem that came out today from the republican party mentioned four times that they have got to start including gay people in the party platform. >> wait a minute. what are the words? the words matter. what do you mean, including them in the platform? >> they said that they're -- oh, that's right, no, the platform actually is terrible, as it relates to lgbt people, but the report that came out today used the position that they have against lgbt people as one of the reasons why they did so poorly this past election. >> therefore? >> it has to be followed up with actual action. >> i
that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. the scariest aspect of the american invasion of iraq ten years ago today was the ease with which it was sold to the american people. my generation grew up believing aggression was evil. in our schoolbooks and in the war games we played as kids, the aggressor was the bad guy. call this if you will a too basic way to look at war. it is, however, the way we were taught. hitler invaded poland, japan
has 60 votes to pass the senate. but this is all a sideshow, because if john boehner doesn't decide to pick this up in the house, then for naught. >> well, it's not for fought if he can put the pressure on the house. >> that's true. >> that's certainly to me a pretty tough position to be in. if you're boehner, this has passed the upper house, i don't think the members should get a vote on it. cynthia, if sam's reporting is right, and he is a first-rate reporter, and we have a bill that includes background checks, does 2 including the ban? does it include the magazine or whatever, does it have something worth while in it? >> chris, i would like to know more about the details of the background check bill, because one of the fights between democrats and republicans has been over recordkeeping. democrats say if you don't require private sellers to keep any report of a background check, how do we even know that the background check was down? republicans have been say no records of any kind because of course the gun lobby insists that any recordkeeping will lead the government to confisca
